This volume presents initial results of a study to identify the issues and barriers associated with retrofitting existing solvent-based equipment to accept waterbased adhesives, as part of an EPA effort to improve equipment cleaning in the coated and laminated substrate manufacturing industry. It is an introduction to the technical, economic, and environmental issues associated with converting from solvent-based to waterbased adhesive coating processes. Its purpose is to define terms commonly used within the industry, introduce retrofit concepts, and identify unresolved issues.
